My Fog Light CAI is only for SG9 (06-08) Foresters. Abacall also made a Fog light CAI, but only for the 03-05 Foresters which have larger foglights and different fog light housings, so you might want to distinguish between the two.

Start a thread and send me a link, i think emaciatedcow did the same thing so would be good to have a DIY for it, thought about seeing if an 08 would fit an 04 since they have similar fog light looks.

The dealer badge removal link in the first post doesn't work, at least for me. Here's a different link for the same thing:

Updated thanks

Sent from my DROIDX

Looked through first 50 pages now, if people know of any good old mods that would be great. If not think the next time I have extra will be in a different forum section.
